tense day of talks. president trump set to meet with mitch mcconnell today. comes as steve bannon wages war against the gop establishment. offering a small break from the deadly raging wildfires in northern california. the damage and death toll continues to grow. >> secretary of state rex tillerson once again refuses to say whether he calls president trump a moron. defending himself in part by attacking washington. good morning, everyone. it's monday, october 16.
i'm ayman mohyeldin. alongside jasmine and lieu burgdo burgdorf. president trump will meet with his cabinet before hosting lunch with mike pence and mitch mcconnell. relations haves been icy since august. president blasting mcconnell on twist. reports that president trump picked up the phone saturday and called mitch mcconnell ahead of a week when they have to work together on a budget or risk losing tax reform. this as steve bannon declared war on monl and his leadership team. are probably going to be it will be the end of mitch mcconnell as we know it. >> steve bannon has said the republicans should go to war against mcconnell.
all you should get rid of him. mitch mcconnell is not our problem. our problem is repromised to repeal or replace obamacare and we failed. we promised to cut taxes and we've yet to do it. if we're successful, mitch mcconnell is fine. if we're not. we're all in trouble. >> now despite the outreach to mcconnell, two unnamed sources. bannon appeared on fox news. sitting republicans who don't actively support the president's agenda. >> president trump is also congress on the next steps of the iran deal after he decertified the deal on friday and the treasury department introduced new sanctions on the guard core. friday bashed the international agreement. refrained from pulling out completely. >> iranian nuclear deal, why not just scrap it all together now. you threatened to do so, why not just end it now.
>> see what happens othver the next short period of time. i like a two step process better. >> you're going rip the iran deal off. >> i may do that. i may do that. the deal is terrible. so what we've done is through the certification process we'll have congress take a look at it and i may very well do that, but i like it two step process much better. >> as for which actions congress can take, there are a few. the first would be to do nothing. not reimpose sanctions under the deal. congress could choose to reimpose sanctions, violate the deal and pull the u.s. out. another is for congress to amend the nuclear review requirements with the schedule changes. iran nuclear agreement control act. access to inspect military sites. and removing the need to verify iran's compliance every 90 days.
during an interview with cbs news. foreign minister saying the united states changing the deal would have a worldwide impact. >> no one would trust any u.s. administration to tendanger in any long-term commitment because the durr ration of any commitment from now on would be the reminder of the donald trump president. >> are you thinking of any country in particular right now. >> no i'm thinking of the entire international community. >> not north korea. >> including north korea. spoke to the statements trump made on north korea where imposing choices that push the united states towards war. "the washington post" on friday said quote you cannot publically castrate your secretary of
state. we're giving you the choice. in an interview, rex tillerson's quote about president trump's leadership style before responding to reporters. >> i think this is an unconventional president. he uses unconventional communication tools. he uses unconventional techni e techniques to motivate change. people in this town get very nervous and very uptight about having to address serious issues by making decisions. the president is trying to simply do that in his way. >> declined to confirm or deny nbc news's report if he called trump a moron. as i indicated earlier, i was asked about that. i'm not going to deal with that kien kind of petty stuff. gossip. they feed on one another. very destructive way.
i don't work that way: i don't deal that way. i'm not going to deal with that question. i'm not playing. these are the games of washington. i'm not. >> i'm not playing. i'm not digging that. >> jacqueline, good morning to you. good to have yo with us. in an interview, secretary of state refusing to answer that question that has been dodging him for the last couple of weeks, did he or did he not call president trump a moron. is this nonanswer by tillerson in the world of washington politics and speak, is that revealing at the relationship between trump and himself, the fact he would have come out and absolutely denied it. and do you think in some ways. >> it's problematic. it's unclear if he didn't call the president a moron why he wouldn't just come out and say that. whether he did is obviously very
problematic. even if he did the fact he won't say it and the fact someone would be telling people he did to try to promote fighting in the white house, none of these are good scenarios. this relationship between the president and secretary of state is one of the key relationships in washington. i mean, especially as we're dealing with increasing threats from north korea, threat that military leaders have said is the biggest thing facing our country. for this relationship to be on the rocks is concerning. >> let's talk steve bannon now at the value voter summit on sunday a lot of people talking about this and getting traction over this. he delivered a fiery speech calling out establishment republicans including senator mcconnell, corker for not supporting trump and his agenda. what has been the reaction among congress to the aggressive speech over the weekend. he also said whenever the republican establishment falls, i'm ready to lead it. >> we heard speaker paul ryan
saying last night that criticism by breitbart is just sort of the republican party has learned to deal with. something that's not going to go away. he'll brush this off. the rise of steve bannon in the administration is new, this election cycle, this sort of push and pull in the republican party is not. in 2010, we saw the rise of the tea party. the same sort of primary challenges to challenge the establishment. so this is something republicans have weathered before and came out with a majority. let me ask you quickly about the relationship between trump and mitch mcconnell. steve bannon turning up the heat on the senate majority leader. do you think we're going to see a cooling down of some of the relations between trump and mitch mcconnell. expected to have phone calls today. the president needs mcconnell to get things like tax reform done. >> i think when the two men speak they're going to talk about things like the path
forward and tax reform and budget. the key thing is them trying to repair their relationship because as you said, the president does need mcconnell to bring out this legislation and really get a lot of his agenda done. which he's going to if he isn't able to get done, is going to impact both the president's election in 2020 and nearer terms, the two men really do need to learn how to work together. >> it's interesting to hear that sort of trump and mitch mcconnell butting heads and might be having lunch today. a juxtaposition. it's been a week since a series of deadly wildfires broke out in california. it may finally be over. winds over the weekend were less than expected. giving firefighters battling the flames a bit of help. now more than half contained. damage and death toll has been costly. nbc news correspondent has more.

welcome back, everybody. twin bomb blasts in somalia over the weekend have killed 276. officials fear that number could rise. since then rescue teams have been digging through rubble, searching for survivors. more than 300 people were injured, leaving hospitals strained beyond capacity. the deadliest attack ever in somalia's history. the government is blaming the al qaeda linked group al shabaab. >> no condemnation from the white house. that's troubling. new comments from secretary of state rex tillerson on north
korea has raised eyebrows. janis has the details. >> insisting that pressure, sanctions, diplomacy have united world leaders in a way that's unprecedented and a diplomatic solution to the north korean crisis is still possible. he also had implied when he was here in beijing, meeting with chinese officials that the diplomatic channels to b wrchlt ongyang are open. of course, there was some contradiction that followed 24 hours later when president trump tweeted that rex, quote, unquote, was wasting his time. it has been a little bit of a riddle to figure out if the secretary of state and the president of the united states are on the same page when it comes to handling the north
korean crisis. it underscores what is the biggest risk, what remains the biggest risk which is, of cou e course, miscalculation, that a lack of understanding or confusion over the rhetoric or muks mixed messaging could trigger something more devastating. there are joint naval drills getting under way between the u.s. and south korea. they're going to last for ten days, involving fighter jets, helicopters and naval ships, including the aircraft carrier "uss ronald reagan" all off the waters in the korean peninsula. pyongyang traditionally has seen these drills as a threat, seeing its a rehearsal for an eventual invasion. there's not been any reaction out of pyongyang today. late last week they did renew the threat of missiles toward guam if these drills did go ahead. >> janis mackey frayer, thank
